Liberal Studies program
Southern's program in Liberal Studies gives students a chance to tailor their coursework to meet their academic, personal,
and career goals. Rather than pursue a traditional 30-36 credit major, students can
combine a number of established minors -- or even design their own interdisciplinary
minors -- to create a unique and innovative educational experience. Besides flexibility,
this program also offers depth of study. Whether working toward a B.A. or a B.S.
degree, all students in the program are required to complete 36 credits of advanced
The B.A. program provides a broad liberal arts education, while the B.S. program is for students whose academic or professional goals are best reached through three related minors.
